Its been so hot outside and our air conditioner at work has been out for the last two days...but I made myself get out in the yard for a few minutes and I'm glad I did or I wouldn't have seen this beautiful butterfly!
04/03/10 - Sarah P. Duke Gardens I really wanted to see the tulips this year at Duke Gardens, and after missing the botanical gardens at the River Banks Zoo earlier this week due to time constraints, I was pretty determined not to miss Duke this year too.  So, I headed over with the kids yesterday.  I know it wasn't the most fun thing for them, and on top of that it was out right HOT, but they were real troopers for me, and I took them to Lake Crabtree to play afterward and threw in a Frosty to boot.  Actually, I think they had a good time except for the heat.  There are rocks and bridges to climb on there, it was pretty to them too, lots of dogs to stop and pet along the way, and plus they do all these make believe games on all our walks.  The gardens, as you would expect, are just beautiful this time of year.  The daffodils and camellias were finishing up, but the tulips and many flowering trees were gorgeous.  I didn't have as much time as I wanted to take pics, but I took enough.  We even got to see the GBH on the side of the bigger water area.  That is one social bird!  I like the intense color in this shot.  Joey said it looked like cartoon tulips:-)  I tweaked it just a tad across the bottom to get rid of a few distracting spots and I did an auto contrast.  It's very close to sooc.  The blue color is pansies.    More Duke Garden shots from yesterday are here: http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Duke-Gardens/Duke-Gardens-040210/11706535_gUsTb#826083083_ahUEh  Glad you all enjoyed the shot of Johnny having fun in the water minus knowing how cold it was.  They were out in the kiddie pool yesterday afternoon reliving their water fun from the day before.  HAGD, Maryann
November 7, 2009 - Reflections at a local Madison park.     a short trip to Madison,Wisconsin on a beautiful, sunny weekend
Waiting... dreaming... - Mar 2 2009  What do we do when we just have to wait... dreaming of a better life? I haven't got a clue what this man was thinking about while he was waiting to give the 'all aboard' signal.
Sep.22,2006  To smile or not to smile  Wanted to capture the drop reflections again. Was experimenting with how many smilies I can squeeze into the drop based on how far away the drop was from the background. This seemed optimal without cluttering up the drop too much. Wish I got this a bit more in focus.  Here's the levels corrected version based on all the comments.
5/8/12 - Tree swallow; best viewed in the largest sizes.  I'm going to try to add the date for Art, but I have a lot of trouble remembering, plus I often don't even know what date is it.  Dates are just something I don't notice.  Thanks for all your comments on the photo of Domino watching the moth.  It would have been neat if I could have gotten the moth in the same shot.  Hope everyone is having a good week so far!

3rd year Pic 322 - Sep 05 2011  Tiger crossing  Ranthambhore Natonal Park    During a ride in Ranthambhore National Park we had watched this Tigress, T17, sleeping near the lake. When she got up the driver of our Maruti Gypsy (an open Jeep type vehicle you can see at the far end) drove off and waited at the end of the road she would take. He knew she'd come out and cross over to another road.  We waited for 3-4 minutes and sure enough she emerged and crossed us diagonally  at a distance of about 100 feet!  What was interesting was that the people beyond the entrance to the park were unaware of her presence!    I've taken the liberty of posting two pictures today. The other one shows T17 in the middle of the road. Hope you enjoy both the pictures.  Best seen in bigger size    Added on 6th Sept.  Kara and Ed,  The Tigress was inside Ranthambhore National park. The doors are closed soon as a vehicle enters the park but as it was closing time they were open for the Gypsies to exit.
092311  Have a Colorful and Enjoyable Fall    My favorite cornfield. This was taken on a visit to the Finger Lakes in New York just south of Ithaca. I wanted something special for the first day of fall and it is too early here to capture the trees like this.
June 16th, 2010: Sun Bleached Brilliance  “Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”  - Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta  Hope you all have a great day.
11/15/09 - Escape Into an Alternate Reality (or something like that)  I've been wanting to take pictures of the box cars in Fuquay for a while now.  Yesterday I finally stopped to do so.  Always something neat about trains to me.  I've been staring at this car with the open doors for quite some time.  It hasn't moved for months.  Anyway, I grabbed some pictures of it and it's buddies and played around with them last night.  With no special effects, I guess they are just orange box cars:-(  So I converted to B&W and played with settings.  Still boring.  Then I decided to try and do a 'Wizard of OZ' kindof thing where it's B&W on one side but color through the door.  I tried 5 pictures for the color one at least and different processing of them too.  I'm not really happy with the outcome, but it's what I worked on last night, so I'll upload it today anyway.  The sci fi girl in me keeps thinking wormhole or Stargate and that I need movement between the sides.  But then the City on the Edge of Forever didn't have too much motion I don't think in that door.  That said, maybe I needed to wave the inserted picture.  Well, I twirled it anyway.  Something to think about some more!    Some other trials and the original are in my November gallery here:    http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Nature/November-2009/10198920_oRbHf#713619436_AGvdo    Poor Johnny caught the stomach bug that Joey had and he and I missed the birthday party yesterday...just heartbreaking.  Hopefully he is some better today.    Have a great Sunday!  Maryann
Doesn't Jackson just look so thrilled with his new baby sister????
Simple Beauty - Jun 4 2009  Many thanks for the nice comments on my butterfly shot! This rose would have been yesterdays DP, but I was too excited about those dazzling butterflies. I gladly offer this beauty to all you who visit my daily gallery, you're the best!!!
2/13/09  EASTERN MEADOWLARK  Let me begin by thanking you all for all the warm compliments on my photos the last several days.  I have tried to  comment on some of yours as well, but slow internet and busy vacation days make it hard to get to everyone right now.  This is my first ever photo of a meadowlark.  They are so skiddish at times that you can't get close enough to capture the image.  I have several photos of him singing which I hope to share later .  Picture this...this is how I captured this image.  We're riding down a dusty, Florida back road in the "country" and there he is down the way on a fence post.   I open my door and we crawl slowly towards the gorgeous guy.  Bob stops the car at a reasonable distance and I prop my lens between the door frame and the car frame just above the hinge (more-less)...what a great image stabilitzer (lol) and a good blind too , it seems.  I'm happy...isn't he a beauty? HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND...AND MANY THANKS AGAIN FOR STOPPING BY ALL THESE DAYS...

This photo was taken August 23, 2010 - it captures lava flowing from the Kilauea volcano on The Big Island of Hawaii. This was the main lava flow as it emptied into the ocean. I was sitting in the bow of a boat, bobbing up and down in the ocean, when I captured this pic. You can't really see the scale of the eruption in this shot, but about 15 feet of the "shore" is shown here. You can see the steam created when the molten rock hit the ocean - it would sometimes obscure the lava flows - but it was like a dance, when the steam cloud would part for a few minutes allowing a glimpse of the lava beneath.
